that they are dispensable. That’s right. I have been there. And I know what it is to live without no money, or not knowing where the next meal will be coming from. And this post is also for the unemployed Nigerians. The rate of unemployment is striking!

The Nigerian population is growing fast, thereby putting a demand on employment, electricity, and other infrastructures, but unfortunately our Government officials care more about their own pockets than the interest of the people. It is so sad that we are so blessed with natural resources. Yet we are wallowing in poverty! Well, I am not here to talk about how our politicians and so called leaders have turned this country into a chaotic situation, but I only mentioned it because it relates to what I am about to discuss; how to make money online in Nigeria.

You don’t have to be reliant on anybody anymore, because ‘they’ have disappointed us before, and they will disappoint us again! It is about time you started looking out for yourself. Talking about ‘looking out for yourself,’. There are so many ways to start up something without waiting to be employed by someone. How about you becoming an employer? Will that not be right? I think that would be ‘awesome! ‘.

Now here is the deal. I will introduce a number of ways you can make yourself useful and make ‘cool’ money without having to work for somebody else anymore. These approaches were tested and proven to be reliable and viable.

‘What Can I do Online To Earn Money?’

You can do quite a number of things; like I earlier said, they are ‘reliable and viable’. This is not a scam, or get rich quick scheme, but it is a sure way to make a living and a thriving one for that matter. And you can become wealthy when you work hard and put in all it takes to make it happen. I am not one of those people that will tell you, hey, I have got a business solution that will make you rich instantly! As a matter of fact, there is no such thing as getting rich instantly. Yes, I will rather tell you as it is, than try to give you false hope. I was told that in the past, when I was still searching for a way to make money online, only to discover, they were after what they could get from me than what they would give to me.

So, how you can make money online in Nigeria is as follows;

  • Start an importation business
  • Apply for an online jobs like, data entry, visual assistance, web designer, writer, etc.
  • Or you can opt to build a website, fill it with quality content, and monetize it.

An Importation Business

You probably have heard about it, but have not given serious thought to it or you may have not heard about it. Whether you have or have not heard about the importation business, I am still going to talk about it anyway.

This is a business you can start with minimal capital. You can start importing from U.S, UK or China from the comfort of your home! It is far too easy and convenient that all you need is the information on how to import, a local bank account with master or visa card, and your start up capital.

You can virtually import anything from any kind of smart phones, laptops, jewelries, wedding ring, bracelet, phone accessories, digital camera/video, Brazilian hair, etc. All you need to do is to make your market survey before purchasing, that way, you will be able to know how much you are going to make. Probably arrange for your customers beforehand, so that when the goods arrive you will just supply it to them instantly, or you may decide to sell them as retails. You can tell your friends, your church members, or association members about your business, they may want one or two things from you.

Apply For An Online Jobs

This is another online business that you can get into, especially if you have any specialty, such as writing, web design, seo, data entry (if you are good in typing on the computer very fast), logo design, etc. There are a whole lot of things, that you could do online in order to earn money.

There are legit companies and individuals out there that are willing to pay for your services, all you need to do is to make yourself visible to them with your specialty and you can get hired.

Starting Up A Website

This is yet another online business model; that is more vast as to what you can do with it. It wa_like_to_earn_600x600is so vast that, you may just have to settle for some part of it. What I mean in essence is that, when you set up a website, you can earn money in different ways with it, such as using Google ad sense, affiliate marketing, sell your own product on it, or even start collecting email address and start email marketing, and so on and so forth. It is so vast that you need a good resource, tool and support to be in a position to start up. That is where a site called wealthy affiliate comes in. This site is so legit that it restricted 4 countries from been able to register for free, Nigeria inclusive.

Wealthy Affiliate, provides the resources, tools and support you will need to succeed in this business. They will virtually help you to set up your website and teach you practicable things that will make your website standout. Their worth cannot be overemphasized, really.

They offer their registration for free! Just for you to try and taste what they hold in store for you. Site that does not provide quality services will not allow you to get in and see what they got to offer for free, except they are confident of what they are made up of. Wealthy affiliate is such site that is a gem.

During my search for online business, I found some sites that claim that they offer ways to earn money online, only for me to find out the hard way that they were scam, full of up sell, but then, they had already made me register with money. Until I discovered wealthy affiliate, though unable to register, but somehow got around it and registered. Since then, I have been enjoying every bit of my stay at wealthy affiliate, just like the name ‘Wealthy Affiliate‘ the things you will learn there is inexhaustible. Just as you would be thinking you have got it all only for you to realize there are yet other things you need to know in order to succeed.

I have written my first book, thanks to wealthy affiliate. I did everything from the book cover to the content without paying anyone to help me. And I will be doing another book soon. This is something I could not have known without wealthy affiliate.

  1. Great site. Very respectful of you trying to acknowledge your fellow Nigerians and helping them out. Very insightful information. Very impressed.

  2. Hey man I like your sense of motivation and how you are reaching out to your people in Nigeria. And the article was interesting as well. Just a few things though under the heading ‘What Can I do Online To Earn Money?’ I noticed which may need some changes man at the part where it was supposed to be a speech, the quotation marks are missing to make it a speech and in the first bullet it should be, start ‘an’ importation business.

    And in the second bullet the sentence ‘Get to be hired online for jobs like, data entry, visual assistance, web designer, writer, etc.’ can be changed to ‘apply for online jobs like, data entry, visual assistance, web designer, writer, etc.

    Otherwise man the post is very clear and your writing style is easy and simple to understand. I also like how you advertise Wealthy Affiliate at the end it’s very catchy and the pictures suit the way you wrote about them and that is some good advertising right there!

    How many sales has your book made so far man? And you inspire me because I’m also looking at becoming an official author one day 🙂

    1. Hello Ntando,

      Thank you for your constructive observations, I have noted that and acted accordingly.

      I have sold a couple of the books, despite the fact it has not been long I put it out for sell.

      It is a very good idea to write a book, especially about something you are passionate about, and also going to be useful/helpful to people. As a matter of fact, I would encourage my protege to do the same if they can. I think you have the writing prowess, therefore, do not sit on the fence but start getting started, and you will glad you did.

  3. This is an amazing post so heart felt God bless you and your people thank you for being such a humble servant wish you all the success in the world stay blessed

  4. You make a very valid point young man. For too long not the greed of the African so called politicians has ruined what could potentially be a very rich country. It’s time for ALL African people who are in a position to be able to use the Internet to strike out for themselves and make a mark in this corrupt country and someday take it back.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Kind Regards

    Paul &
